Kyahva Tezino has a handful of favorites but one school in particular could have a very decided edge as his recruitment continues.
The Los Angeles (Calif.) Salesian four-star standout who earned the linebacker MVP at the RCS Southern California this past weekend has three teammates going to Arizona and Tezino said that will play a serious factor during the recruiting process.
"That's really big," Tezino said. "Those guys are like my brothers so wherever they go I might go there. I could end up there.
"I'm very close with them. Their decisions could be a factor for me."
The three players are Marquis Ware, Jamardre Cobb and Rodney Carr and Tezino is close with all of them. Arizona's coaches know it and have diligently been recruiting Tezino as well. The four-star said it will be a major consideration moving forward.
"They're recruiting me good," Tezino said. "They show me a lot of love because we already have three athletes going there. They're showing a lot of love."
Tezino's favorites are Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, Utah and UCLA. The 6-foot, 212-pound prospect said Alabama, Florida State and some other teams are also showing interest.
Arizona does look good but the Los Angeles Salesian recruit said he's going to wait to make his decision until much later.
"I'm waiting," Tezino said. "I might wait until signing day or maybe I'll commit at one of the camps."
Rivals.com rates Tezino as the No. 144 prospect in the 2015 class but could move up after a strong showing at the Rivals Camp this past weekend.
